Elian_Fluid_Artesano_Project-1

Argentinian artist Elian is back in the Caribbean where he recently finished this new mural for the Artesano Project, an international mural project taking place in the small beach town of Río San Juan, Dominican Republic.
Curated by Evoca and INOPERAbLE Gallery, the project aims to, no only invite renowned international artists, but also to encourage and inspire young local artists.
Fluid, as the mural was titled, is characteristic of Elian work where we, once again, we find ourselves confronted with a piece close to the realm of abstract minimalism that uses subtle gestures and strong and contrasting colour choices to create a vibrant and elegant mural.
